What We Like About Frigidaire Model FFMV1645TB?
Two Speed Ventilation
Frigidaire has tried to ensure that its cheap over the range microwave oven is not just any ordinary microwave but packed with functionalities. This microwave not only does its job of cooking food efficiently but also comes with two fans to work as ventilators. It has helped to keep our kitchen grease-free and also removed our home’s foul odor.
In our opinion, this microwave with a vent is truly an advanced microwave oven. It has an auto reheat option, which automatically determines the power and cook time for different food types. This smart feature is rare to find in other microwaves in the market, which makes this as the best quality over the range microwave.
Value for Price
Among all other microwaves that we have observed, this best over the range microwave sale is among the affordable microwaves in the market with a price under $400. With all its smart and advanced features that this microwave is providing, we must agree that this product has good value for money.
Easy to Maintain
Cleaning a microwave can be a tricky job but not with this best budget over the range microwave – black. It is made of stainless steel, which makes it very easy to clean and maintain. You can easily clean every corner of this device without much effort. We took only a couple of minutes to clean this product after operating it.
What We Don’t Like About It?
To our disappointment, this over the range microwave with vent has a plastic handle for its door. It may not look like much of a problem, but we differ. The lower portion of this handle can break easily, and buying a new handle can be an expensive affair. We wished that the handle was made of metal instead.
Frigidaire black microwave FFMV1645TB has one annoying feature. Even when it stops cooking, it continues to beep loudly nonstop until and unless you open its door. This can be a bit irritating to some. We would have happily preferred it to beep for about three times and then stop. You do have an option to stop its beeping completely, but that is not ideal as your food can get overcooked.
Yes, Frigidaire 1.6 cu ft FFMV1645TB microwave includes mounting hardware in it. However, while you do get a mounting plate, it does not include screws. That is something you would have to arrange yourself.
Frigidaire 30″ Over the Range microwave is available in black color, not black stainless steel. The material used for making this microwave is stainless steel.
Unfortunately, no. This Frigidaire 1.6 cu. ft. over-the-range microwave oven does not have programmable lights. It has a LED light under the unit to illuminate the cooktop.

It is available in three colors – black, stainless steel and white. Unlike other microwaves, this device sits over your countertop and has enough interior space to fit large bowls. Not only does it work as a microwave, but it ventilates your kitchen too.
In addition to all of these, this Frigidaire FFMV1645TB manual is also user-friendly and quickly clarifies our doubts regarding its usage. It is a budget-friendly oven and is a good choice for anyone. With this, we have come to the end of Frigidaire FFMV1645TB review. We hope it helped to ease your doubts.
